, austerity has been hurting obama's economy, for the last four years. government spending has gone down in ten of the last 12 quarters. under ronald reagan and george w. bush you will find this part of economic growth and spending is pretty much all growing under the two republicans. you can see it under the graph. under reagan, it added in his first term a bit more than 6/10th of a percentage point, under bush, about half a point. under obama, it has been negative. if obama is a socialist he is terrible at it. here is the interesting thing, if the economy is shrinking because the economy is shrink, we now added new jobs, almost 200,000 jobs in december. and we added more than 150,000 jobs in january. what is amazing about this, this period was fiscal cliff element, it was what everybody was saying the economy really needed was deficit reduction. and this is a period in which we didn't come to a big deficit reduction deal. what we did is raise taxes. it cut the deficit a bit, but not a big deal. what happened to the markets? somehow we kept adding jobs and the stock market did really we
was listening to president obama call for gun control, she had no way of knowing that in a matter of only a few hours, her family would become the latest in chicago to be ripped apart by a gunshot. her 18-year-old sister was shot and killed while walking with friends, one of whom may have been the intended target. cnn's ted rowlands has moran the story. he's joining us now. what are you finding out, ted? >> reporter: well, wolf, it is just another tragic story coming out of chicago. another teenager loses her life. as you mention, a 14-year-old girl who was up on stage with the president, listening to him talk about gun violence, would soon find out that her sister was also shot and killed. when president obama returned to chicago last week to talk about gun violence, 14-year-old destiny warren was one of the high school students standing behind him. a few hours later, destiny's 18-year-old sister was shot and killed in this alley in north chicago. >> all this gun violence that's going on out here, you never think it will be your child. this is the hardest thing for me in my life. >> reporter:
you up right. >> bret: we are about 27 hours away from president obama's first "state of the union" address of the second term. chief white house correspondent ed henry tells us what we can expect to hear. >> president obama only used the word "jobs" twice in the inaugural address, his team is now building tuesday's big speech as a continuation of a major push on the economy. >> you will hear in the president's "state of the union" an outline from him for his plan to create jobs and grow the middle class. the president has always viewed the two speeches, inaugural address and "state of the union" two acts of the same play. >> the play since inaugural featured scenes with the president focusing instead on gun control, immigration reform and other issues. leading to headlines this weekend about the president pivoting back to jobs. a phrase republicans say they have heard nearly a dozen times since mr. obama first tried to pivot back from healthcare. >> the president spent most of the first term avoiding the issues americans cared about most. >> what i am suggesting is he not do the s
back hagel. democrats have largely supported president obama's pick to follow outcomegoing secretary leon panetta. the new poll shows the federal government is not popular with the american public. a majority of americans thinks it threatens their personal rights and freedom. let's talk about it. david mercer and former rnc spokesperson is here for a fair and balanced debate about why everybody's so cranky. good to see you both. >> good tesee you. >> so now, we believe it's the first time in the history of the poll who have a majority of american who is say they are not happy with the federal government. >> in the poll, if you look deep into it, it says outright that conservative republicans who in 2010 had a 62%... feeling of being threatened by the government, now it's up to 76%. so i think that's largely driving this new number that we are seeing in the poll, which is to say, what is it attributed to? a lot of factor, being the financial crisis, starting in 2008 and i think also a lot of gridlock and partisanship, which we all need to take a note of so we can get to fair and balan
. >> thank you for having me. >> eric: president obama says it's washington's fault, the latest explanation for the sluggish u.s. economic recovery. and it has been tough going. let's take a look at the unemployment rate when mr. obama took office, it was 7.8%. right now, it's just ticked up a bit, 7.9%. the percentage of american who is are not working as much as they would like to, in 2009, that was 14.2%. today, up just a hair, 14.4%, the president claims the capitol is dysfunctional. >> i bet most americans are thinking the same thing right now -- nothing will get done in washington this year, or next year, or maybe even the year after that, because washington is broken. can you blame them for feeling a little cynical? that's the reason my jobs bill that would put a million more people back to work has been voted down by republicans in congress time and time again. it is the biggest source of gridlock in washington and has been over the last 3 years. now here's the thing -- remember i told you this was a choice that we have to make? because what is holding us back right now is not that
this morning. obama care contraception change, combination and really helping people out or is this a big gimmick? who is going to end up footing the bill for the third party insurer who has to pay for these contraceptives. essentially what's happening is nonprofit religious groups are not having to provide this contraception whether it be birth control or the morning after pill. to their employees, they still do have to alert the third party insurer. >> that sounded on first blush like a great accommodation because a lot of people were upset about that. if you read further you will have to provide a third party insurer. it seems kind of gimmicky, don't you think? >> the whole idea was and the critics, of course, have come out and religious institutions and george town university. other religious institutions said look, we don't want to be a part of this conversation. we should not be forced to provide free contraceptions to the people who are on our staff. we need to have that separation here. but, because they have come out and said now we need to be able to talk to these third party in
obama like you've never seen him before. white house press secretary jay carney tweeted this picture a short time ago. it's of the president who is shooting at clay targets. it was taken august 4th of 2012 on the range at camp david. the president had mentioned his skeat shooting exploits in an interview with the new republic last week. the pick toured release comes just ahead of the president's visit to minneapolis monday where he is going to promote his gun control proposals. new today president obama says 2013 can be a year of solid economic growth but only if washington gets out of the way. >> we are poised to grow in 2013. and there are real signs of progress. home prices are starting to climb again. car sales are at a five-year high. manufacturing is roaring back. our business has created 2.2 million jobs last year. and we just learned that our economy created more jobs over the last few months than economists originally thought. >> hey, guys, holding back on front page politics and back to alabama now where there's a news conference on that hostage situation. let's take a list
even if it means raising some new revenue just the way obama is demanding. joining me now with his take on all of this joe trippi, howard dean's former campaign manager hanna fox news contributor. joe has a strategist do you agree that that is really what is happening here with the president? >> it's certainly by default going to go down that way. part of the reason i think it works for him is that the republican part see is sort of fractured right now and is arguing about the path to take. i mean, even within its own ranks and that definitely hess the president, who by the way has this -- i know we look at his 53% approval rating and wonder, that's relatively slow sometimes for a second term, beginning of a second term, but the republicans in congress have a 23, 24% approval rating, so, you know, you put those two things in combination and he's got a lot more room to maneuver and to push, and he seems to be very aggressive to do this. jenna: approval ratings aside, i don't want to mention the approval ratings of the media, we are pretty low in there too. that aside the president is goi

on what investigators think went wrong in a live report. martha: president obama in his super bowl interview. he dropped a bit of news. he is pushing once again for increased revenues. there is only one way to get those these days when you have got an economy that's not growing. former president wash adviser karl rove is here with us next. gregg: a little boy in alabama still being held hostage. this is the 7th day as new details emerge about this suspect. >> we can't physically do anything. all we can do is meet up and pray. >> he's coming out. we don't know when and we won't know why probably. when vegetabls reach the peak of perfection. the vegetables do. at green giant, we pk vegetables only when they're perfect. then freeze them fast so they're are as nutritious as fresh.

, it is a goal. certainly, that is what president obama said he supports, that someday -- probably not in this lifetime, but some day we should hope for a world that would be free of nuclear weapons. i have heard you say that you agree with those two statements prepared but do you also agree that as long as nuclear weapons exist, we have to maintain a safe, secure, and effective nuclear arsenal to deter any adversary? >> yes, completely, absolutely. i have never had any position but that. as i indicated this morning and this afternoon, i will continue to take the position. as i said in my opening statement and an answer to other questions, our nuclear deterrent has probably been the core of keeping world peace and avoiding a world war iii. as long as there is the threat of nuclear weapons, and like you noted and president obama noted in his speech in 2009, it probably will not happen in our lifetime. but just as you noted, and in senator read's comments about what president reagan laid on the cape -- on the table in 1986, we need to keep working on it and moving forward and temptin
are an important part of the approach that the obama administration has followed and congress has supported, and it appears that sanctions are producing tremendous pressure on iran. another statement which has raised concern is senator hagel's recommendation that we conduct, "direct, unconditional, and comprehensive talks with the government of iran." now, while there is value in communicating with our adversaries, the formulation used by senator hagel seemed to imply a willingness to talk to iran on some issues that i believe most of us would view as non-negotiable, and any willingness to talk to iran would need to be highly conditional. senator hagel's reassurance to me and my office that he supports the obama administration's strong stance against iran is significant. we look forward to hearing senator hagel today in some depth on that subject. we will also be interested in hearing senator hagel's statement on the public statements is made on israel and the united states, that our policy of non-engagement with the syrians as, "isolated us more than the syrians," and a 2009 statement that
could be achieved in the new obama administration, the second term you about it is ultimately the supreme leader who calls the shots. certainly the fact that iran told the u.n. nuclear watchdog last week it was going to be deploying a significant number of second generation centrifuges that can spin uranium three times as fast as ones currently used is not a sign of stepping back, jenna. it is certainly a sign of moving quickly along. there are some experts who think that actually more rigorous, intensive, sustained negotiations at this point will be more useful than sanctions. then there are different opinions at this point about this point of no return. some say it his iran has enough fissile materiel it could make a nuclear warhead. and that would be this summer by many estimates. others are saying that red line point is when iran can do that but do it in a way that is undetected by world powers so they won't really have an opportunity to respond in time. and some experts are frankly saying iran is already at this point is a nuclear power because it frankly does have the kn

of the things is the new formation of the government in israel. i think the obama visit may play a role. it feels to me like really the politics are very, very much influx more so than they've been if you have for example president obama being very successful in his domestic program. feeling like he's more of a leader, more sure in his negotiations with people. i think that puts benjamin netanyahu in a different place than he's before been. >> we appreciate it. thank you for joining us. coming up my notebook. ♪ >>> france's operation in mali hasn't even ended, but already it's offering lessons for the future as u.s. and european militaries pare back spending. first, credit france and its allies for acting swiftly and decisively to keep mali from falling to al- qaeda, islamists and tuareg rebels. indeed the french operation drove islamists and tuaregs to turn on al-qaeda. second, light highly trained well armed special operators light infantry and paratroopers backed by air power proved vital. third, france crafted its thoughtful coalition to trade mali forces with troops from chad sec
